AGM 2024
 ‘Looking at Beads’
 from the 
Reserve Collections at Chilcomb House Study Centre
This year we are holding our AGM in Chilcomb House, Winchester and then Chloe Menage’s brand new ‘Lovely Lockets’ workshop in Andover Museum (see p. 38). Please plan a visit and support both events. Winchester is a wonderfully historical city and well worth a weekend visit.

Friday 5 July 2024

Free to members 

In 2024 our usual annual AGM weekend will be in the Winchester/Andover area with the AGM at Chilcomb House which is the Headquarters of the Hampshire Cultural Trust which looks after the county’s Museums and Archives in Winchester.

We will be able to look at beads and beadwork from the Trust’s collections in the Study Room where the AGM takes place. 
The collections include beads from both archaeological contexts and more modern beaded items such as purses etc.
The approximate timetable for the day will be as follows:
•10.00–11.00 Arrive at the venue, chat. Set up ‘Show & Tell’ Tea/Coffee etc
•11.30–12.30 AGM
•12.30–1.30 Lunch (please bring a packed lunch)
•1.30–4.00  Hopefully we will be able to look at beads and beadwork from the Museum’s collections.

Please put the date in your diaries now and plan a visit to Winchester in July!
